Recycled packaging

When I used Prima flowers on my DLO on Paddy's CJ earlier today, I kept the card from inside the packaging - I felt it was too good to throw away. So I cut off the top part (where it said Prima) and stamped with one of my favourite Inkadinkadoo tree stamps, using memento rich cocoa and heat embossing with detail clear - so this is for these recycling challenges:

Creative card crew
: recycle something
Try it on Tuesday: a bit of upcycling
Moving along with the times 95: recycle
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 76: happy earth day - recycling, reusing or renewing

I chose the colours for Guylou's creative khaki challenge:

and also used the sketch and 'birthday' theme for Pixie cottage 66:

The background paper is BG cappella; ribbons, buttons and birthday wishes sentimet from stash.

This is also for:

The paper shelter 10: inspired by nature
Stampavie and more 138: birthday
Stamp n doodle: masculine creation
Meljen 55: masculine
Aud sentiments 26: anything goes
Pile it on 17: 2 or more ribbons
Amber's crafts and stuff 6: ribbons and bows
Incy wincy 91: buttons and bows
Let's ink it up 13: show us your stitching
Creative craft: embossing
Simon says: emboss it

Purple and white inchies

These inchies are for this month's swap on BF forum.

I stamped with Paisley background funstamps with brushed concord DI and then stamped a tiny stamping up 'for you' - just the addition of a flower with a gem in the centre and a spotted butterfly on each.

Apologies for the poor quality of the photo - I've now enveloped these up so I can't try to get a better photo.

Happiness is ...

This is is the title of Paddy's CJ and it was my turn to add a DLO before posting off tomorrow to the next person in the BF forum group.

I found the quote on the internet and liked it. I used Best Creation Mr & Mrs papers - they have some lovely flittered glittering on them - quite subtle. Flowers are Prima Innoscence. The large lettering on the right hand page was computer generated/printed and the smaller lettering on my dymo letratag. The organaza wired butterfly is one I've had or a long time, waiting for the right occasion to use it - it's a bit more pink than it looks here and has silver glittered edes to the wings.

I'm linking for these challenges:
